Flash Fiction: The Dragon and the Lemon Tree

lemon tree

The Dragon and the Lemon Tree is my second flash fiction published with Daily Science Fiction. The original version was a tweet-length short story sent to Dave McKean as part of his mini tweet story competition, and although it didn’t win, it got an honourable mention. I’d always meant to turn it into something a little longer down the line, and this is the result. I love negotiation tactics in stories, and story-within-a-story concepts are always fun to write. You can read the story here (x) for free, and I hope that you like it.
